These vertical gardens in Indore are not just eco-friendly, they’re straight-up genius
Indore is known to advocate the swachh lifestyle. When it comes to cleanliness and a healthier more rounded way of life, Indore’s example is the first that pops into our brain. Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) has achieved milestone after milestone when it comes to sustainable living and it’s high time, other municipal corporations learned something from them.
From trucks that go house to house to pick garbage, a segregated waste disposal at every corner, turning a huge dumping ground into a lush golf course and using its waste to produce diesel, IMC has done it all. In a new bid, IMC has constructed vertical gardens all over the drains and nallahs of the city and it is not just beautiful and eco-friendly, it is extremely smart.
Vertical gardens have become a trend of sorts, with businesses, individuals and organizations opting to construct one in a bid to beautify their homes and properties. IMC was quick to catch on to the trend and build vertical gardens along the open drains and the nallahs in the city.
Speaking to TOI in-charge of the IMC garden department, Kailash Joshi said, “Erecting vertical gardens at nallahs and drainages not only added beauty to that place but also stopped people from throwing trash into water.”
We hope that the municipal corporations of other cities find it in themselves to borrow a page from IMCs illustrious book and build something similar if not the same in our city too.
